It can't get much worse than 2016, so there's no where to go but up! Most New Year's Resolutions circle around fitness.
The New Year comes right after the holiday season where we chow down on pie and get a little too comfortable in our winter bods. Whether you want to lose 20 pounds, five pounds, or just turn some fat into muscle, I have some tips for you!
Make sure you aren't taking adderall, skipping meals, and simply hoping for the best. This will not keep the pounds off permanently! In fact, it may even pack them on later.
Skipping meals slows down your metabolism and won't give you the long term results you want. In 2017, start exercising, eating healthy, and putting in the work.
Here are some ways you can help aid the process:
1. DRINK WATER!
At least eight glasses of eight ounces every day.
2. Cut back on alcohol.
Choose red over white and lose the sugary mixers.
3. Do a cleanse.
Tea-Toxes are my favorite!
4. Speaking of tea...
Drink more green tea on the daily!
It supports natural weight loss, aids muscles and joints, and reduces inflammation.
6. Take a shot of apple cider vinegar in the morning!
It's gross, but it works.
7. Flaxseed Oil.
It supports natural weight loss and fights cellulite.
8. Eat flat tummy foods.
Almonds, asparagus, blueberries, oatmeal, salmon, spinach are all great for that.
9. Never Skip Breakfast!
Ever ever ever!
10. Eat Throughout The Day
Six little meals are better than three big meals.
It regulates how the body metabolizes fats and carbs.
12. Hit the gym.
Go at least three times a week & never go three days without it.
13. Mix up your workout.
Try boxing, cycling, pole dancing, etc.
14. Add lemon to your water/tea.
It makes it taste better without any extra calories.
15. Avoid processed foods.
This should be obvious.
16. Whole grains are your friend.
Avoid white bread, white rice, and potatoes.
17. Crank up the cardio.
The more sweat, the more pounds you lose.
18. Enjoy your food.
19. Get enough sleep & reduce stress.
You'll be happier all-around, also!
20. STAY POSITIVE AND LOVE YOURSELF EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!
You have to start now, keep your goals in mind, and remember that it won't happen overnight. It will be a happy new year indeed!
